's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 111 days until the 2012 election, and mitt prromney is ready to dig up the dirt and go personal on the president. in the words of a former president, bring it on. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> he tries to divide america, tear america apart. >> they tested the waters yesterday. today, the romney camp is diving in. >> light our hair on fire then. >> they'll step up their personal attacks on the president to try to dodge the tax issue. i'll ask bob shrum and richard wolffe if it has any chance of working. >> to say that steve jobs didn't build apple computer or that bill gates didn't build microsoft or henry ford didn't build ford motor company -- >> mitt romney adopts the fox news lie about the president's small business comment. >> a lot of people were waiting for that to come out. >> and then agrees with the full context otthe president's comment on small business. >> by the way, there are a lot of people in go
on the cayman islands. so what is it mitt romney doesn't want us to know? maybe it's in the tax returns he refuses to share, or the felony he might have commitmented by making false statements about his role at bain. we understand, mitt, sometimes the truth is tricky. tricky mitt. he's not a crook, right? moveon.org political action is responsible for the content of this advertisement. >> that ad will start running tomorrow in ohio, where mitt romney is scheduled to the campaign. romney campaigned today in pittsburgh, where he tried to do a donald trump impression without ever actually using the words, "birth certificate." >> in the past, people of both parties understood that encouraging achievement, encouraging success, encouraging people to lift themselves as high as they can, encouraging entrepreneurs, celebrating success instead of attacking it and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> while romney was visiting pittsburgh, celebrating his success, team obama chose to introduce a new television ad on pittsb
. and the choosers. you are picking the president for the rest of us. so that means you don't have the luxury of political apathy. we, those of us who live in the all too predictable ballot box behavior states, counting on you to get it right. first of all, don't be fooled by the optics that are meant to signal the candidates understand the lives of scalled ordinary people. you know, like buss with folksy tour names. rich guys pretending they ride the bus is not a signal that they understand your lives. neither is rolling up their cleaves or leaving their neck ties at home or eating pancakes or drinking a beer. you know how politicians show you they can relate to your lives? creating policies that make your lives better. pay attention to what they say to you, not just what they are showing you. and numbers like these, totally unacceptable from a pew poll showed 45% of americans are completely clueless about the supreme court's landmark decision on affordable care act. listen, if it's your vote that determines whether or not the rest of us get health care, swing states, i need to you do a litt
. the rest of us are counting on you. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry before we begin, we want to congratulate congressman barney frank and jim ready who got married last night. governor patrick duval officiated and asked if they promised to love each other on sickness and in health, on msnbc and fox, as long as they both shall live. congressman frank the first sitting member of congress to enter into a same-sex marriage. but now onto our top political story. when most of us think of the map of our country, we picture this. 48 states, all smooshed together with two more hovering in the pacific. but if you're one of the two americans currently running to be president of all the states on that map, right now, you're not really thinking much about the vast majority of them, because only four months out from election date, your version of the u.s. map looks a lot like this. this is a map of the battleground states in the presidential election and if you didn't see your state highlighted on that map, hate to break it to you, because your vote is not going to matter much in determini
, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in chicago and was associated and worked with rod blagojevich to get valerie jaret appointed to the senate. there will be counter attacks. now we understand why romney attack dog john sununu went on fox news and called obama a pot head from hawaii. >> he has no idea how the american system functions. wetient be surprised about that because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in indonesia. >> drug use, allegations, and tony resco, all that stuff, they're not the only old tricks pulls from the hat. joe arpaio was putting birtherism back in the news cycle. >> we believe that the certificate presented to the american public by the white house is a forgery. >> well, sheriff joe isn't part of the romney campaign, but that didn't stop romney surrogate donald trump from tweeting today. as i always said, the birthers were after the truth. thanks to sheriff joe. they're banking that they're not going to believe or know who the president of the united states is and they have some
romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show his tax returns. he will have to show them. >> washington post abc poll asked about the handling of the campaign and how they are dealing with it. 20% of the republicans have an unfavorable view. independents said unfavorable more than favorable. could this be what sinks his presidential ambitions? >> i think it is extraordinary that this is a controversy mitt romney's doing. republicans will only go so far about his economic success because it is fundamental to their believes. he has waited until the summer when the news cycle is slower. he has people like us who have nothing more to do than to talk about the campaign other than mitt romney and who he is. we know who barack obama is. he made this issue front and center. it is the only
talking about. >> apparently, he admits he was one of them. now he says he was naive and is joining us tonight. in the side show, how the right managed to conclude president obama is abandoning america for evil europ on independence day. never let the facts get in the way after good story. we begin with health care and whether republicans can repeal it. michael steele was chairman of the republican party, maggie habberman writes for politico. welcome. republicans had vowed to repeal obama's health care law. to do that, mitt romney would have to win and republicans would need to retake the senate and even then, it could be complicated. the senate minority lead er mitch mcconnell conceded that yesterday when speak tog a group back home in kentucky. >> thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in in direction, i'd say the odds are still on your side because it's a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place. >> maggie, is there a clare path for the gop to repeal obamacare? >> there is a clear path in the sense they don't need a cloture vote. as
of which have significantly advanced u.s. national security interests while also strengthening our national intelligence and military intelligence capabilities during a very challenging period in our nation's history. throughout his time in uniform, lieutenant general burgess has demonstrated an unyielding dedication to duty and innate ability to inspire enthusiasm and commitment to serve those he leads. lieutenant general burgess' selfless service to country and his unparalleled personal drive have been instrumental in transforming defense intelligence into a more capable and cooperative enterprise, providing the critical intelligence required by military commanders and policymakers both at the defense and national levels. commissioned as a second lieutenant through the auburn university rotc program in 1974, lieutenant general burgess began his career with a series of assignments in armor and military intelligence units in germany and at fort stewart, georgia, where he was directly responsible for planning multiple highly successful national training center rotations, numerous command pos

it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney
. duckworth lost both legs and use of one arm in iraq. plus, fires in colorado, drought in the west. more than 3,000 temperature records in june. is global warming to blame? this is exactly what scientists had been predicting. how long can the right wing continue to insist that what we're seeing is a hoax? and remember jonathan krone, the 13-year-old darling of the right? >> so i decided there were too many people who through this, the term conservative around, who didn't understand what they were talking about. >> apparently, he admits he was one of them. now he says he was naive and is joining us tonight. in the side show, how the right managed to conclude president obama is abandoning america for evil europe on independence day. never let the facts get in the way after good story. we begin with health care and whether republicans can repeal it. michael steele was chairman of the republican party, maggie habberman writes for politico. welcome. republicans had vowed to repeal obama's health care law. to do that, mitt romney would have to win and republicans would need to retake the senate and

that the law is largely constitutional, and zero chance the senate will go along. nbc's brian mooar joins us with more details. good morning. >> reporter: hi, lynn. it is strictly for show but plays to the base of both parties. the house is voting today to repeal president obama's health care law. >> we are standing here for the american people against the largest middle-class tax increase in the history of the united states, and we will not stop until we are ultimately successful. >> reporter: democrats point out this is the 31st house vote on obamacare. >> one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. >> reporter: the next big fight is, who gets an extension of the bush era tax cuts? >> give mitt romney another tax break that would cost -- that would cost about a trillion dollars, and we can't afford it. >> the idea, i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. >> reporter: with washington hopelessly grid

provision, right? what they wanted was a state in which with eused incentives here and there. where we used the tax code and penalized and incentivized. that's what's become the mainstream of democratic policy as well. using the tax code, using insentives and penalties and now they're turning around as if this is some ridiculous notion. this is the model they created. >> you're distracting many e. i'm just reading about the tax reform act. it's one of my favorites. >> this thing, by the way, if you can work your way through what romney actually said, it's kind of sort of true in a constitutional way. we have 51 constitutions in this country. 50 state constitutions, one, you know, federal. and some of these state tunes like massachusetts provide in the constitution very broad power for the state legislation to enact things in the general welfare and they don't need the massachusetts constitutional power to tax to ground it, or they don't even have a commerce clause, obviously. and so, i mean, there's a law school class in which there's a point to be made. he's trying to make. but i an, you c
who wants information can e-mail us. we will hook them up with the right information. >> the president and ceo of mobileye, here atthe ford motorn display. you have a display here. why does ford being here? >> companies really have to innovate and bring technology into their overall plans to stay with consumer demand. ford is looking to do this in a safe way. consumers are looking for information and updates. what we are demonstrating here today is working with third- party industry leaders, company's common in the medical device field to develop systems where people can access that information. >> what are you specifically displaying are talking to lawmakers about? >> a few things. this is currently available on your iphone. ford is working with the maker of this application to provide a way to have this information right out to your hands free through a sink enabled ford vehicle while you are in the car. why is this important fact say you're driving through an area. this will be able to tell you that you might want to avoid this area and drive around it. >> the poli
class men. the polls are showing us while he is doing well with women and some other groups, this is a group that seems to be wavering between president obama and mitt romney. a recent average, shows the president with less than a three-point lead within the margin of error. on the fourth o of july, he addressed military members saying we need more immigration laws that allow immigrants to stay, like the dream act. mitt romney was up in new hampshire. while he tried to shy away from politics officially, he has been wrapped up in this debate over whether or not he contradicted himself in his campaign over the health care mandate. is it a penalty? is it a tax? romney says the supreme court called it a tax, so it is a tax. his campaign said otherwise. we will likely turn the focus back to the economy as new job numbers come out for june. lynn? >>> scientists at the large hadron collider have announced they have likely discovered the so-called god particle. it may explain how stars, planets, even life, how these things were created and held together. science editor, lawrence mcg
intensify the problems in the african-american community. >> reverend, to your point, governor romney using the term obama care. he does not refer to the law in massachusetts that he inspired which you have pointed out is on his official portrait as governor of massachusetts. he does not call that will romney care. he would actually prefer to call it nothing when you talk about it, but nevertheless, talk about the issue of unemployment in the african-american community. we played the first clip of the governor referring to the african-american community and if they're looking for a president who will work for them, he is this person. he was very obviously ginger when acknowledging the historic signatures of the first black president, but saying here i am. don't look at my race. look at my policies whatever they are that we've not seen that he somehow believes will make life better for blacks. >> and i think that if we look at his policy, then he failed to say how those policies would address the disproportionate amount of black unemployment, particularly when his policies say let us protect
, the republican party's economic policy thinking is at the moment in shambles. joining us now, jared bernstein, former chief economic adviser to vice president biden, now a senior fellow on budget and policies and an msnbc contributor. jared, good to see you as always. >> great to see you and great to listen to you. >> first off, tell me, you're a smart guy, you know how to read this stuff. you've read the plans many times, you know the obama administration's policies very well, and the bush administration's, for that matter. are there major differences between the bush economic agenda and philosophy and what mitt romney's proposed here? >> no, if anything, governor romney doubles down on many of the measures you mentioned. you know, it was interesting, at the end of your discussion, you just said, well, one thing that's different is repealing dodd/frank. that's deregulation, right? that's the hair of the dog that bit you. and the amnesia that's setting in vis-a-vis financial markets -- by the way, i was struck by sandy weill yesterday, former ceo of citigroup, saying, no, actually, all that s
and brings us into the 21st century, into a new vista. >> scientists know that 95% of the universe is made of what they call dark matter that they can't see. the his bozon could be the link between ordinary stuff and that dark matter. in the next two years, scientists will be ramping up the collider of lucerne to even higher energies precisely to try to answer that question. >>> that was itn's lawrence mcginty reporting >>> here is a look at other news going on around american. in alabama, a different kind of fourth of july blast. crews there blew up the 13-story building complex at the university of alabama. the rose towers as they were known, housed more than 30,000 students and faculty over five decades. some of the alumni even came back to watch a piece of their past come tumbling down. it will take three weeks to clean up the rubble from the explosion. >>> in illinois, a train derailment and bridge collapse north of chicago. it is not clear which happened first. several of the 138 train cars being hauled across the state were mangled in the wreckage. the train was carrying coal from w
unemployment in the african-american community. now at 14.4% higher than any other racial group. joining us by phone is the reverend al sharpton host of msnbc's "politics nation." let me get your reaction to what we heard from governor romney. >> well, i think that he did what was expected. he had a hard audience for him, but i think that what was interesting to me is, i think it was calculated, tamron, that he was gog attack the president's affordable health care act. call it obama care and expect that he would get some kind of displeasure from the audience because i that he wants to be able to be play to the right wing and to his conservative base that i went in and stood up and that i'm not a wall flower, i'm not one that goes from one side to the other. i stood up where i knew it wasn't going to be popular. i don't think that he went to the naacp to get support. i think he went there to play to independents that he would go and that he wanted to play to the right wing that not only will i go, but i will stand up for our beliefs. when you hear him lay out his policy, how on the one hand
was a hit for griffith on broadway, tv and film. for most of us, andy griffith will always be remembered as the sheriff of mayberry and opie's pa. >> that was a pretty good idea i come up with, huh? sglrk mark barger, fsn news. >> here's your "first look" at news around america today. in mississippi incredible video shows a car that turned right into a rocket. it launched into midair after slamming into a section of road that buckled from the heat. the driver could be seen losing control and heading the wrong way into oncoming traffic. amazingly, no injuries were reported. >>> in illinois, even professionals trying to demonstrate the dangers of messing around with fireworks can learn the hard way. a woman suffered minor burns on her foot after the canisters used to shoot fireworks in the air tipped over, causing the pyrotechnics to go out of control. organizers say the mishap proves their point about firework safety this holiday. >>> in chicago, it was canine chaos as a fugitive fide was able to stay one paw ahead of the law. i'll be here all week, bill, tip your bartenders. police hound
the places i used to travel in illinois. the first race i ran as a state senator, michelle and i had to xerox or go to kinkos and copy our flyers. we didn't have a tv budget back then. we rode around in my car, and i filled it up with my gas and i'm the one who got lost if i took a wrong turn. what's amazing, though, when i think about it was how many people you'd meet from every walk of life all across illinois in big cities, small towns, up state, down state, quads, you name it. and you'd always hear similar stories from people about their parents, their grandparents, the struggles they had gone through and how they had been able to find a job that paid a living age and to look after their families and their kids had done a little better than they did. those stories would resonate with me and michelle because that was our story. that was our lives. and then when i came to iowa for the presidential campaign, first stop, cedar rapids, first stop. [ cheers and applause ] first stop. >> we love you! >> i love you, back. the first stop was cedar rapids. then we went on to waterloo, and that was
they will use medicaid funds to expand coverage. >> what is going to happen and we saw it when medicare first started, a lot of times politics gets in the way of common sense. so, there are a lot of republican governors who feel pressure from, you know, rush limbaugh and members of congress not to implement and so they think it is bad politics, and over time though, when they see that more and more people in states that do implement are getting a better deal on the health insurance and the costs are going down and fewer people are uninsured and over time what will happen is that the politics fade fades away and this thing gets impleme implemented. >> this trip is all about trying to connect with voters who do not have much of an affinity for the president and in a series of off of the record stops, the president bought a cheeseburger and fries at a diner and had some corn and sipped beer at ziggy's. >> i had a beer in amherst at ziggys so i'm feeling good. >> and that was a miller lite on tap and bud light in the bottle and the president spoke off of the cuff and dropped the tell prompter. >>
